My first road bike the '86 Suzuki GS 1150 EF, had it for 2 years in the mid 90's. I swopped my Ford Laser for it with my younger brother, best deal ever. This bike was a beast and felt like riding a supercharged V8.

Got 25km to the litre at 100 and 3km/l at full speed... Let's just say my monthly fuel bill was not in line with my earnings at that time.

If only I knew how rare these beasts are in SA I would've kept it.

My MBX 50. Those were the best days of my life, without a doubt.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

Beautiful, and probably worth way more than you sold it for.

First my KTM 550 two stroke ! kick start was on the left side..

Second my CR500 AF conversion. Installed a CR500 2 stroke motor into a CRF450 donor.
Put my heart and soul into that bike. :'(

my first bike a TS 185 bought for R500 in 1996 and sold in 1998 by my mother while I was at school  :'( :'( :'(

I was working for R30 a day at the time and it took forever to save that much and still have bucks for smokes dop and condoms.
